Make seat belts a choice

Regarding the “for seat belts” letter of Feb/ 16 not a government mandate?

You get fined if you don’t use it. It might, may, possibly could help save a life. That is speculation.

Have you ever seen a report on how many people are killed and injured by seat belts? How many lives were saved not using one?

Let’s be truthful about “compliance”. Promote it as a possible safety feature, I agree.

However, it should be a choice. Fines forcing compliance do not represent all the facts.
